Family Building for Lesbians
Lesbian couples have chosen IVF New England for help becoming pregnant for over 25 years.
Successful pregnancy for lesbian couples through assisted reproductive technologies depends on many factors including the health and fertility of donor sperm, the lesbian partner providing her eggs and the partner who will carry the pregnancy and give birth. The skill and experience of the reproductive endocrinologist and embryologist facilitating the process are also very important for success. IVF New England Medical Director, Dr. Samuel Pang has been helping same-sex couples become parents for 20 plus years. He is highly recognized nationally for his reproductive medicine expertise, and is a member of the gay community. For women who prefer a female provider, three out of six staff physicians are women. (Reciprocal IVF, however, is only provided by Dr. Pang at our Lexington, Massachusetts IVF center.)
The Scientific and Laboratory Director at IVF New England is Kathryn J. Go, PhD, a reproductive biologist who is also nationally recognized. Furthermore, IVF New England has one of the most advanced embryology laboratories in the northeast.
IVF New England has a highly professional third party reproductive services team that meets the highest standards and criteria set by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. All patients who undergo assisted reproductive technology treatment with donor eggs, gestational surrogacy or Reciprocal IVF are managed by Dr. Samuel Pang, who has led this team for the past 15 years.
A number of assisted reproductive options are available and explained on this website.
